Photo Shoot with Entrepreneur Magazine

Entrepreneur sent their photographer over yesterday to do a photo shoot. I was interviewed by the business magazine two weeks ago and will be featured in their February issue. Look for it on newsstands around the middle of January 2008.

Being featured by Entrepreneur represents my first international tier 1 magazine coverage. With 2.4 million readers, I can’t even place a value on the exposure and credibility this will add to my brand. The photo shoot lasted about two hours and was pretty uneventful, with the exception of Sally almost knocking over the lighting setup. We took some shots in my office, living room and outside the house. Here are a few photos and a video.

      1. Yeah he is getting boosted more and more via medias and newspapper, after all he has a story to tell. It is going to be a great exposure for him, as he says “I can’t even place a value on the exposure and credibility this will add to my brand”

  9. Sally got more coverage in the video than you did! :mrgreen:

  10. Dave says:

    Great coverage, one of my favorite magazines. Nice place too.

  11. James B. says:

    Wow… Thats great. You really can learn a lot about running a business by running a blog and vice-versa.

    They both require you selling yourself or a product and promoting yourself or a product.

  12. That’s awesome John! Congrats – from a fellow British Columbian.

  13. Matt Wolfe says:

    That’s great. I love that magazine. Congratulations!

  14. mcangeli says:

    I’ll have to pick this one up in hopes that one day I run in to chow and he’ll autograph it for me… πŸ™‚

    Seriously, thats cool and its happening to more and more bloggers (especially the work from home ones)

  15. Awesome, looks like Sally wants to be in the picture. Not that I’d not do that if I were her.

    1. Hahaha… I just can picture some random dude trying to jump in the shot to be immortalized in the magazine with John πŸ˜‰

      1. Great idea, I am going to have to Photoshop a cover of Entrepreneur magazine real quick. πŸ’‘

  16. Nelson says:

    Congrats John. the baby is pretty cute 😳

  17. Zac Johnson says:

    haha John, I just noticed they used a NIKON… did you tell them to go away at first!

    1. John Chow says:

      I did tell them that official camera of bloggers is Canon! 😈

      1. Hahahah. Uh oh!

        Canon does rock!

      2. MoneyNing says:

        You should tell them to buy the camera off your widgets from TTZ Media first! 😈

        1. And yes, if you need to find some TTZ Media ads, you can find them on They are all over the place!

    2. James says:

      Notice how long he took looking at the preview screen.
      I wonder what this guy would have done back when it was film.

  18. James says:

    I like how Sally was making sure you were smiling. πŸ™‚

  19. GemViper says:

    Gorgeous family too John, I can’t say congrats enough. It must feel great not be living month to month and to be able to provide a level of financial security for your family.

    I bet you didn’t expect to be this far along in a year online, and somehow I think you’ll be much further along than you expect next year too. You’ve got the golden touch, this is the stuff of legends!

    I feel like an ass for suggesting you consider setting up a charity of sorts with blog income in yesterdays post, you’ve got a little one to take care of too.

  20. Congrats John! It’s a great magazine to get into! πŸ™‚

  21. vik says:

    Wow, congrats John. Sally is a very cute baby, by the way.

  22. Congratulations! Wow, that’s big time. You will certainly reap big rewards from that kind of exposure.

  23. Congratulations John!
    When I was a new reader of your blog, I thought that you are a show off, but after reading your blog for 3 months, now I understand you deserve your success for a reason, and the reason is you have substance.
    Congratulations once again and I hope you get featured on many such interviews! Keep it up! πŸ™‚

  24. Mike Huang says:

    Dang John, high-rolling in your nice looking jacket πŸ™‚

    Congrats on your success, I’m sure we are all looking forward to this magazine. I’m sure you’ll post scans of it here when released πŸ˜€


  25. CONGRATULATIONS!!! i am so happy for you! You deserve everything you are getting! πŸ™‚

  26. Amy says:

    Wow that’s really cool! Congratulations and I can’t wait to read it!

  27. Vienna says:

    Aw! Cool kid!
    Is that magazine available here in China?

    1. I think they got the Chinese Entrepreneur version but I don’t know if all the articles get there. I believe only some of it does.

  28. MoneyNing says:

    It’s probably available worldwide. Just go to those international bookstores since they always carry English magazines.

  29. Shaun Carter says:

    Glad to hear the photo shoot went well. I can’t wait to pick up a copy of the February issue.

  30. dfw says:

    I’m surprised you live in a townhouse complex when your making sooo much money. :mrgreen:

  31. Mr.Pinoy says:

    Wow, you’re really get so famous!
    You really deserved to be a blogging superstar.

  32. Congratulations John! I’ll be picking up a copy when it hits the shelves in Jan. :mrgreen:

  33. YoRapper says:

    Congrats your my idol. But you really need to get rid of that vietnam vet hair cut, my recommendation is keep the fade but just go lower on the top. It will look way better!

  34. Aaron Cook says:

    Congrats John! There’s nothing like getting proper recognition for all your hard work! πŸ™‚

    I’m definitely excited for you and excited to see what else comes down the pike.

    Shine on,

  35. shy guy says:

      Yeah definitely!

      I am just waiting for movie offers!

  36. Nice work John! Gotta love the baby-proof coffee table…hehe πŸ˜‰

  37. Ed Lau says:

  38. Etienne Teo says:

    I cant wait to see this copy coming to asia.

  39. J.J. Merrick says:

    awww Cute kid. I have 2 girls and a boy all under the age of 4.

  40. Dean Saliba says:

    That jacket makes you look like a badie from a Jean Claude Van Damme film. :mrgreen:

  41. Kelly says:

    OMG! She is so cute, I have been begging my Husband for another one.

  42. Well done, John πŸ™„

    Having gotten the plugin for Firefox I did however also discover that you get all our comments and use the nofollow-tag – of course with the alibi that you would be penalized if you didn’t….. πŸ˜‰

    You are smart, and often smart people fool the less smart. But credibility is something you won’t achieve from the front of Entrepreneur. You would have gotten it by creating a win-win situation with this blog. Nofollow is no part of any win-win situation.

    Like it or not, I prefer being honest, and wish you the best of luck.

    Sincere regards

    Henrik V Blunck

  43. Dang John Chow….looking so serious in that photo

  44. Can we see what your actual house looks like from the outside? πŸ˜‰

  45. Congratulations! I look forward to getting issue.

  46. Can’t wait to get the issue. Is this a cover spot?

  47. Etienne Teo says:

    i guess it is going to be on the cover page.
